It’ll be interesting to see how a little thing like producing for Kanye’s album Yeezus will change things for Brooklyn producer Arca, née Alejandro Ghersi. For now, though, it’s all beautiful progress: this morning, he released a new mixtape &&&&&. It’s a reinforcement of the beat-heavy chill he’s famous for, but also a total breakthrough for his creativity, breaking songs down to their sexiest and weirdest parts, like a David Lynch film for electronic music culture. At about the 12-minute mark, a horror movie piano enters the scene inexplicably and leaves as quickly as it came — leaving us creeped and hopeful for more.
